Cooperatives internationally are pursuing horizontal and vertical integration at time when businesses globally are increasingly focussing on limited sets of value adding activities in order to satisfy customer needs and maintain competitive advantage. This paper explores this seeming paradox by looking at a recently formed mega dairy cooperative, which has monopolistic control over the New Zealand domestic and export markets. The paper assesses the changes and challenges for the dairy cooperative in its infant years before assessing the relative performance of the cooperative against several key performance indicators.
